Goodbye

A homage to my iPhone

iphone-4s-white-01

I’m actually quite ashamed to admit how crucial a role my cell phone plays in my daily life – it’s the first thing I check every morning and the last thing I look at most nights. I use apps like Buzzfeed for a lighter, more visual, take on the often depressing news (yes I’m also lazy and refuse to seek out a proper newspaper) and Instagram for entertainment while on break. My phone is my connection to the rest of the world – texting, emails, appointments, reminders, photos – they’re all there, which is why the thought of trading it in seems so daunting.

This is the cell phone that got my through the majority of my undergrad, if I had an assignment that needed to be completed, it was in my calendar, if I had an exam I needed to wake up for be prepared for, the alarm never failed me, if I was waiting on the cute guy of the week to text me back, it was ready with full bars, and probably most importantly, if when I went out on a Thursday night with my friends, it held the photo evidence of how many jagerbombs we really did (for $2 it was actually a steal mom :) ). I probably sound a bit crazy, being so attached to an inanimate object, and an ancient one at that *shout out to my iPhone 4S peeps*, but my little iPhone has been by my side through a lot of memorable moments (and a lot of not so memorable ones – thanks for not giving up on me when you were literally submerged in beer).

On the day of the much anticipated trade-in I can’t help but to reminisce on our time together.

The first day I brought you home and you proved how much you were going to up my we-fie game…

Your first DJ show where you proved you were worthy of the protection of a Ziploc bag (Dada Life doesn’t mess around when they say champagne showers)…
